General Powell (as he likes to be called) is speaking with BBC News.
In it, he makes a point of saying that he prefers to be called
General rather than Former Secretary. He makes a point of saying
that by protocol, he should be Former Secretary, but he prefers General.
Maybe I just want to see it, but I like to believe that he wants to
separate himself as much as possible for the shameful, illegal
actions of president bush. Too bad he hasn't been willing to make a
more forceful statement.
